You will get through this night by Daniel Howell is a solid, relatable resource that gives you the information you need in easy to digest fragments and visually understandable tables. As someone who has struggled with mental health their whole life this book is exactly what I've been looking for. Like stated, this isn't something you read cover to cover, in chronological order all in one night. This is a book you will pick up and put down many times as you go through life. Mental health isn't binary because life isn't binary (Much like my gender, lol!), and so the same can be said of this great guide. It's realistic and gives you what you need as you need it. It's like having a friend available 24/7, even in those deepest, dark moments when you're needing to hear it's all gonna be okay and good nudge in the right direction. I can see myself keeping this book on my shelves the rest of my life. ~ Reviewed by Jules Wagner

Near-death experiences, or NDEs, have been documented for centuries, and occur with startling frequency. Through decades of rigorous research and empathetic understanding, Greyson shows how NDEs nearly always enhance a rich appreciation for life, and stimulate a firm belief that death is not an end, but a resplendent beginning. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

This is one of those rare books that blows the mind and then begs to be read over and over again. The premise is unusual -- and perhaps that is why it is so compelling. The author Robert Bly, a founder of the mythopoetic men's movement he helped birth in the 1980's, walks us through the obscure German fairy tale, Iron John, alternating the telling of the tale with a blend of literary scholarship and poetic imagination. What results is a work of deep and timeless wisdom -- an inspiring, bracing antidote to our cynical, materialist, soul-crushing, conformity-obsessed modern world. ~ Reviewed by Sam Baker
